Product Description

Product Description

Original score to the 2013 motion picture composed by Christopher Gordon (Master And Commander, On The Beach). Naomi Watts and Robin Wright deliver riveting performances in Adore, a sensual and provocative drama about two lifelong friends who find unexpected happiness in relationships that cross the bounds of convention. An unpredictable tale of misguided love and a heartfelt celebration of the enduring nature of female friendship, Adore is the English-speaking directorial debut of Anne Fontaine. Set in an Australian seaside town, Adore establishes an aura of fable as it follows two women's plunge into uncharted waters. Adore radiates with intoxicating sensuality while exploring the intricacies of love, family, morality and passion. The exquisitely beautiful score for Adore is by the brilliant Australian composer Christopher Gordon, perhaps most known for his scores for Master And Commander as well as the Hallmark productions of Moby Dick and On The Beach. Every new score by this composer is a very special treat and Adore is not to be missed

5.0 out of 5 stars Lush, Hypnotic, and Memorable 13 Oct. 2013
By scorianado - Published on Amazon.com

After being bombarded with a constant flow of loud, obnoxious Zimmer-esque scores and trailer music from every corner of the scoring world these days, it's refreshing to come across a score as daringly spare as Christopher Gordon and Anthony Partos' Adore. With careful nods to T. Newman and Christophe Beck, Gordon creates a lush palette with which to paint the aural scenery for the film. Lovely string arrangements accompany an active piano and accenting harp notes, with Partos' infusion of subtle electronics to top off this wonderful score. Definitely recommended and, in my opinion, one of the year's best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adore (2013) soundtrack - an intimate, rewarding listening experience 6 May 2014
By David R. Purnell - Published on Amazon.com

The 2013 movie, "Adore," is based on a 2003 novella by British writer Doris Lessing called The Grandmothers. It stars Naomi Watts and Robin Wright.

The soundtrack of "Adore" was written by two renowned and internationally awarded Australian composers -- Christopher Gordon (best known for his film scores) and Antony Partos (known for his film and TV scores). Twelve of the 18 music tracks are composed by Christopher Gordon; six by Antony Partos. Although the musical style of the two artists is very different, they harmonize well in this film score. Gordon's instrumentation and style is more traditional, featuring lush string arrangements often accompanied by piano, and vice versa. Partos' style is a blending of acoustic and electronic instruments. Some of the punchier tracks of the score are by Partos.

I bought this album after recently seeing the movie; recognizing how much of this movie-viewing experience, for me, was shaped by its impressive, sparsely orchestrated score. I find this subtle and evocative soundtrack to be an intimate, rewarding listening experience. It is music I would recommend to my most discriminating music-loving friends.
